Buffalo Bills - Von Miller (LB)

The most obvious player most would want to steal from the Bills would 1000% be Stefon Diggs, and who could blame them?

But there are quite a few incredibly talented receivers in the division, making it a bit easier to bypass Diggs in order to snag an experienced and proven pass rusher like Von Miller.

Sure, his age will likely turn some Patriots fans away from agreeing with this choice, but even at 33 years old last season, he still managed to total 21 combined tackles, eight sacks, ten tackles for a loss, and 12 quarterback hits in just 11 games.

That is still pretty good, is it not?

As the team stands, the Patriots have had just one player to rely entirely on as a pass rusher, Matthew Judon. The 2022 season did see the rise of Josh Uche, who totaled a career-high in sacks with 11.5 in 15 games, and Deatrich Wise Jr., who added 7.5 more sacks for the defense as well.

But with consistency issues from Judon, whose performance tends to dramatically slow down near the end of the season, and the uncertainty of Uche and Wise's continued success in getting to the quarterback, the addition of Miller would be the ultimate insurance package.

Since the Patriots intend to continue being a team led by their defense, Miller's presence alongside Judon would create a quarterback's worst nightmare.

Now how can we make this happen?
